Wikileaked is a new foreign policy journal that covers nothing but the stories emerging from Wikileaks's leaks, including the latest batch of #cablegate leaks. It looks like an exhaustive blow-by-blow of all the revelations contained in the leaked cables -- something I've been looking for. There are at least four different Wikileaks stories: the intelligence in the cables, the reaction to that intelligence, the debate over the ethics of releasing the cables, and the news about Julian Assange. I find them all interesting, but I'm much more interested in the content of the cables themselves, put into context. Wikileaked is my new go-to source for that information -- despite the fact that its publisher is owned by the Washington Post, which has led the pack in stupid, reactionary attacks on #cablegate (ironic, given WashPo's own history with the Watergate leaks).

I have offered plenty of advice on caring for your cast iron cookware. Stop seasoning it in the house, use your BBQ. Seasoning this stuff in the oven (my favorite old way,) or on the stove smokes your house up. Just throw the shit on the grill. Super thinly put a coat of oil on […]
A little over a year ago I reviewed Obenauf’s. I just ordered another jar. Baking in leather as the sun pounds down on you is kinda the motorcyclist thing. My jacket is a treasured article of clothing that, like Gregory House once observed “It keeps me warm and cool. How does it know?” Abusing that […]
There’s no shortage of stories about the benefits of cannabidiol, that benign (and non-psychoactive) cousin of THC. Some have been using it for years to deal with pain, stress, and sleeplessness. And the more people use it, the more discussion there is about how to use it. While there’s no shortage of quality edibles on […]
Are we done with capsule coffee makers yet? Sure, they’re easy. But they are not so easy on the environment, and it’s debatable whether they actually make a better cup. Luckily, there’s never been a better time to switch back to the good old reliable drip method – especially when drip coffeemakers have quietly been […]
If there’s one thing that stayed consistent through the last decade or so of tech industry turmoil, it’s the love affair between techies and Linux. There’s just a ton you can do with the OS, and its open-source format means you can customize your rig from the ground up. Apparently not content with that level […]
